Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Recently i've got Squid running, it works perfectly! But I also want my clients use POP3,SMTP and NEWS throught my proxy. I know Squid is only for HTTP but is there an add-on to use socks? Or maybe an alternative?
You don't want to use SMTP through squid - it is not secure. It could allow anyone to relay mail through your proxy. Plus there is not a sinlge reason to cache or filter SMTP traffic anyways. For SMTP go through your regular gateway/firewall instead.
But the only way to connect to the internet is through my Debian server. So I have to do something to forward those ports. I don't want clients connect directly to the internet. I'm just asking for a solution to give clients access to POP3, SMTP, NEWS etc. throught my Debian server.
